What is Co-Working?
Co-working spaces are essentially shared workspaces. Many offer affordable office space for those looking to escape the isolation of a home office and offer more data security and less noise than a coffee shop.
According to Forbes, there are 53 million freelancers in the US. By the time we reach 2020, 50% of the American workforce will consist of freelancers (both full and part-time). This has given rise to more co-working spaces across the country.
What is Bottega Exchange?
Bottega Exchange is a local Las Vegas home grown company and female owned co-working space joining this growing trend. With over 7500 square feet of mixed use space—from private offices to open spaces that provide a coffee shop feel, as well as a podcast room and special event areas, Bottega Exchange offers a one-stop shop for those looking to build their brand and expand their network. Memberships start at $125 a month and private offices start at $800 a month with no long term leases required. https://www.bottegaexchange.com/

Together, we believe that the success of one benefits the success of the group.
